Polaris Book 3 Routes Update

Hi all,

Hope you're doing well!

I've been busy with my day job and wracking my brains for my night/weekend job (ie, putting together the third novel for Polaris).  Finally, I've decided to go with Bai Hu and Dui..yep, the physician who replaced Master Yu from the first book, that Dui.  So why Dui of all people?  Didn't think he would ever be a main guy?  Me neither.  Actually, while I worked on the first book, I had random ideas and jumped to different routes, one of which was Bai Hu's.  Somewhere along the way of writing Hu's route, Dui inserted himself, which was also the reason I added him to book 1--because I'd created him as a character for another route.  However, I didn't intend for Dui to become a main... it just sort of happened.  The more I thought about pitting Hu against Yue or Hu against Hai, the more I find Hu versus Dui more compatible.  So huh, Demon General vs physician... jock vs nerd... take your pick!

Currently, my story is too focused on Dui.  This is what happens when you write random things and then go back a year later... can't remember what was intended.  I had Hu as the shinning star and now he's phased out of the route so that's going to need extensive editing.  Nowhere close to done but just wanted to give an update.

Also, I've been looking at Fushigi Yuugi pictures again and then crying in a corner because my art will never come close to Miss Watase's.  And after crying about my lack of talent, then I just cried because I love Hotohori so much.  And then I laughed when I watched "Hang in there, Nakago."  Followed by more crying since I still love Hotohori so much.  And then I fell asleep from all the crying.  That was the gist of my weekend.  Yes, I know.  I don't have a life.  That's why I write about people who do.

Now I'm depressed.  See you later, folks.
